Hump Day Hottie (I know it's Thursday but it is MY hump day this week)

This weeks (one day late) HDH was born on March 8, 1982 in the town of Nuevo Leon, Mexico to father Renè Drachenberg and mother Sylvia Galeano, who were born in Argentina.
At the age of 4 the Drachenberg family emigrated to the United States.
She collects vintage platform shoes and designer clothing.
She makes a cameo appearance in HIM’s music video for “Killing Loneliness”.
She was exposed to the arts at a very young age which led to her love for the works of Beethoven.
She speaks fluent Spanish.
She is obsessed with photos of downtown L.A.
She skateboards to work.
Her favorite band is Motly Crüe and their song “Starry Eyes” is why she had stars tattooed on her face.
She gave her first tattoo, a Misfits skull, at the age of 14 and was hired into her first shop at the age of 16.
She is accomplished in portrait and realistic art with an empasis on black and gray scale.
She appeared on TLC’s Miami Ink and will be opening her own tattoo shop, L.A. Ink in spring 2007.
Here are some examples of her work:

I know a guy who is a tattoo artist in San Diego and he has her as one of his top Myspace friends. Myspace was the first place I was exposed to her. She is very hot indeed.

Oh, I like this one a lot. And now I know why she has the stars!

Churlita ~ This summer she will be on a new show on TLC called L.A. Ink.

Mielikki ~ I like her too. She is just a kick ass chick. At first I wasn't sure if they were stars or leopard spots on her face. I kept thinking that they were "Cat markings" for Kat.

She is a great artist. The shop is a few blocks from our apartment. We have walked by several times, but have never seen her.
